Special Delivery Pen Pal Project

Second grade students in Mrs. Arsenault's class and Mrs. Lallemand's class received packages in the mail last week. Inside the packages were copies of the new picture book, Special Delivery, by Philip C. Stead and Matthew Cordell along with a letter from author, Philip C. Stead.

Students enjoyed reading the story of how Sadie tries to mail an elephant to her Great Aunt Josephine. They learned it would take a lot of stamps to mail an elephant!

After the story, students discussed some of their favorite packages, cards and letters they've received in the mail. Then they wrote messages on postcards to mail to 1st grade classes in Frisco, Texas.

Second graders are looking forward to receiving postcards from their new friends in Texas.

Special thanks to Macmillan Publishing for including FES students in the Special Delivery Pen-Pal Project!
